Just Yesterday, I stepped into the ward to check on a patient I had been treating a few weeks back..
Reported to the senior, and he was happy to see me there as always.. He knew, i had been coming, just to check on my patients.. And he respected that.. So much so that, I got a text from him saying, he was happy to see me there, keep it up.. Those words of appreciation were worth everything I did..
After treating some new patients, to help him out, and checking on my old patients, and finally finishing it off with an entry, I turned around to see something that made me my day.. It was the exact same thing, that made my senior happy..
I turned around, and saw my junior who had assessed the same old case along with me, standing there at the patients bed, just to see how he had improved..
That moment for me was an amazing one, because now I knew I had been successful as a senior.. If I could inculcate those same values in my junior, to keep a check on the patients improvement, i had achieved it.. I had now been able to bring into existence a new gonna be physical therapist, who cared..
It makes me proud everytime, I see my juniors learn, what I try to teach them.. I teach them what no one taught me, what I learned by myself, with the expectation that would bring out the best in them and they would pass it on to their juniors in the same way as I did..
That day seeing her do, what I had been trying to teach her not with words but with my actions, I felt the same, what maybe my senior had been feeling, when he saw me doing the same..
It was a moment of achievement.. Today, I would like to thank my senior for appreciating my efforts and my junior to make them of worth.. Now I can make sure i have my profession in safe and responsible hands..
Well maybe, most of you might be thinking of who actually the senior or the junior is..? Well, wait and watch, just their actions would define them, more than words..
